First I got a heavey towel out and laid it down on the floor. Then put the protable dishwasher on its back side to expose the casters. I removed the two screws on the bottom kick plate. I cut the tops off the old casters, the plastic portion. Pulled the old casters out with pliers, then pushed the old plastic housings out using the back side of the side cutters. Just pushed the new front casters right into place. on the back ones,Just pulled the old casters right out with the pliers. they came right out. Pushed the new ones back into place.Put the kick plate back in place. Took the old upper arm nut off. Compared the parts. put the new arm in the new nut. Screwed the new nut in place. Got it back up right, hooked it up and ran it. I am disabled with nerve damage to my arms and hands. The average person could have done this in about 10 mins. It is just like it is brand new now.

the spray arm is held in by a plastic bracket that snaps on or off over two points. I was able to remove the bracket without using any tools,just my fingertips. It is really simple!
after reading the remarks from other DIY users of the site, I realized that not only did I need to replace the spray arm, but should replace the spray arm nut as well. The repair took less than a minute to unscrew the old one and add the new, and it has worked like a charm ever since. Thanks guys, and goooood luck.
I ordered the new spray arm and nut, snapped them together, screwed the nut onto the screw and started a load of dishes. That's how simple it was. Glad I found your website. Thanks.
Unscrewed old nut, inserted new nut into new spray arm and screwed the assembly back in. Took less than one minute. Requested the 3-5 day delivery and received parts on second day. After examining the old and new parts it appeared the nut was the only part I would have needed, but since parts were less than $5 each I did not want to take a chance. Total cost was $16, the shipping being the most expensive item but much cheaper than paying for a service call.
removed old nut and arm, put in new one, took about ten seconds
I wasn't sure what part was faulty, so I ordered the spray arm assembly and some additional parts. They were all surprisingly inexpensive, so I wasn't concerned if I had more than I needed.The photos, the accessibility of the catalog, the pricing, the fast shipping, and everything about the Part Select experience was outstanding. Part Select actually made me feel competent.
I unscrewed the old plastic nut, Screwed the new nut in place, and snapped the spray arm into the nut. The new nut has a different design (better) and I do not anticipate having to replace it again.
I found it easier to attach the spray arm to the nut before installing the nut on the threaded inlet water shaft. The threaded inlet shaft had some play and it was necessary to be sure that it was pulled through cabinet as far as possibe to start the threaded nut.
Removed upper spray arm nut and spray arm and replaced with new. No tools required, took maybe 1 minute.
Unscrewed the old nut, attached the new arm to the new nut and screwed it in.Getting the handle off of the old silverware basket was very tough but I did it with help from two of my kids. Why do they call it an 8-section basket when there are only 7 sections? Oh, well.
After reading other customer comments I knew what to order. When the parts arrived all I had to do was unscrew the nut and screw the new one on and snap the spray arm into place. As easy as that.
I marked that this repair is really easy, because I am sure it will be as soon as I get the Nut that goes to the Upper Spray Arm ordered. I would have ordered the two together to save myself shipping charges twice except that this site did not let me know that the Nut would be changed also in order to resolve this problem until I orderd the spray arm. In my email stating that the spray arm had been shipped they graciously let me know this information. So, now I am waiting to have the money to order the other part I need. But, with this said, I'm sure it will be nothing more than screwing on the nut and popping the spray arm in and wha-la...I'll have my dishwasher back :)
Snapped the new arm into the nut and screwed it in. No problem.
